Blackburn manager Gary Bowyer was left frustrated as his side failed to take their chances during the goalless draw with Bolton on Friday night.

The Blue and Whites had the majority of the opportunities against their Lancashire rivals, but they only managed to hit the target on one occasion during the 90 minutes and they have now failed to win any of their first five league matches of the campaign.

Rovers were also dumped out of the Capital One Cup by League One side Shrewsbury, but despite their indifferent start to the season their 44-year-old boss is convinced their hard work will soon be turned into points.

He told reporters: “You saw the effort and commitment from the players, a tremendous honesty from them. We’ve got to just keep working away and it will drop for us and then we’ll be up and running.”

The former defender believes all the pieces are there for the club to secure their first win, but they must start taking their chances to avoid another frustrating night like the one against the Trotters.

He said: “If the effort or the commitment wasn’t there it would be plain to see, but you can’t argue against that. The chances are still coming and that is the most important thing, now we have to convert them.”

Rovers have taken just three points from their opening five matches this season and they are available at 4.50 to be relegated come the end of the campaign.
